I'm trying to reconcile my Fidelity Index UK fund GB00BJS8SF95 which I've purchased as an ISA at separate times since 1998 through Fidelity.

Previously they showed each year's ISA as a separate entity so I only ever concerned myself with the value, but now they combined the lot so without the number of units I can't track each purchases's performance.

I can deduce the number of units if I knew the discrete value at various points but all the charts I can find show % growth from the start point.

Is there somewhere to get monthly historical fund prices going back say 5yrs?

Click on the black pin to change the date range. Only seems to go back to 2015 though.

Alternatively use the red slider on the Morningstar chart which goes back to 2004 if you click Max:

EDIT: Probably not much use since it doesn't show the price.

If you just need an approx figure, Yahoo will go back to at least 1996 but just seems to give the figures for the last day of the month rather than every day, plus there are a few gaps:

In future, just buy an ETF. LSE listed, transparent and no platform fee. Finance in the 21st century!

This has done admirably thank you and gives daily prices for the period of interest.

Most annoyingly Fidelity themselves (I hold these funds on their platform), can't, or can't be bothered, to provide me with the information. If they really can't it is a sad indictment on their ability to audit historical changes they have made.

Not necessarily as good a solution to the historical records problem as you might hope. In 2015 I bought a basket of ~16 ETFs. Since then 4 of them have gone through some sort of "unit conversion" event which seems to erase any trace of their previous history on the usual financial info sites.

Not sure if it's just me, but the prices on Yahoo look like nonsense and differ from those on other sources. Could be indexed rather than actual prices?

Sharepad has daily prices for this fund going back to 24/06/1999, showing All Prices . Adjusted Periods and Unadjusted Prices, Price and TR. If you want this as a CSV send me a link.

I have been banging on to Fidelity for years about their historic pricing shortcomings but on this particular issue nobody on their side seems to be listening. Their revamped on-line system does have a transaction history functionality which can be used to back-track on purchases. Another issue with them is two decimal place pricing which is often off the mark because some funds use more decimal places than just two. The trick here is to back-calculate the price yourself from the sterling outlay divided by the no. of units purchased.
